The UK will be forced into an even worse energy crisis in less than a year’s time without a plan to improve cold homes and dramatically reduce the demand for gas. The UK is one of the worst countries in Europe for the energy efficiency of its homes, according to new research outlining an urgent need to reduce the amount of heat being wasted. With Liz Truss resigning as Prime Minister, it’s left the nation in uncertainty as to what is going to happen next.
It is widely believed that having energy-saving elements in your home such as uPVC windows and doors, saves money in the long run. Plan-it Windows, based in Bolton, specialise in supplying the North West of England with windows, doors, conservatories, fascias, and guttering products.
Single-glazed properties are fundamentally energy inefficient. Warm air is lost during the cold winter months which results in them not being able to retain cool air during summer months either. You may find yourself investing in fans or air conditioning units which consequently use more energy and electricity in the long-term. These factors will contribute to the ongoing crisis and the rise of energy prices and household bills we are facing as a nation. If you are seeking a long-term investment, we believe it is now more important than ever to invest in uPVC windows due to them being the most energy efficient and cost-effective on the market.
We all hate wastage, so you’ll likely cringe at this stat; 25% of the energy you buy to heat your home is being lost through single glazing, or older inefficient double-glazed windows. Now is the time to look at upgrading to modern ‘A’ Rated windows.
The experts at Plan-it Windows, who aim to improve the energy efficiency of homes while successfully reducing the cost of replacing new windows, suggest, ”quality double-glazing, weather tight seals, and multi-chambered profiles tp ensure that heat loss is kept to a minimum.” This will help to reduce the loss of heat through your windows by up to 70%, reducing the cost of your heating bills, as lower your carbon footprint, too. A double win! With summer coming to a close and fingers beginning to hover over thermostats, investing in some new glass could be a prudent move.
It’s not just windows that the team at Plan-it Windows have in stock. They are also suppliers of a wide variety of doors. How a door looks is essential. Composite doors are a great choice if you are looking for a beautiful asset for your home as there’s a wide variety of colours and styles to suit any property. If you love a wooden door, you will be relieved to know that you can still get a traditional look with a composite door. Sometimes, it’s even hard to tell the difference between wooden and composite doors.
